This weekend started at Thursday with my 25th birthday. I celebrated with my boyfriend by having yummy sushi at a fancy restaurant, then continuing to a pub for some Irish coffee with a friend who came visiting from our old home town 500 km north from here. He stayed all weekend and we played games and drank beer.
I think we played Arkham Horror, our favourite board game, 4 times this weekend and lost all of them xD
I got some mail last week I wanted to show you guys. The Lamy Safari pen I ordered on ebay arrived on my birthday, so it was the perfect birthday gift for myself! And I also got a letter from Monika, a birthday card from Julie and a package full with gifts from my boyfriend’s sister on my birthday, so I was really spoiled mailwise!
I have written a letter with a fountain pen for the first time in my life this weekend and I can see why some people get obsessed with fountain pens! So smooth to write with, and I actually think I write a little bit neater than normal with this pen (just a little bit, but that’s something, isn’t it ;). It’s also very comfortable to write with. I was a little afraid that I wouldn’t like the grip but it’s perfect for how I hold my pen when I’m writing!
Earlier this week I got a reply to my first ever collage mailart that I sent to Tara as thanks for inspiring me. Just look at this gorgeous envelope! <3
I also got more church postcards from my sweet Denise. She is totally spoiling me! I suspect her ulterior motive is to make me start up a crazy postcard collection just like she has (though I doubt I’d ever have such an amazing collection as hers). By the way, look how washi-wonderful the envelope she sent the cards in is! <3
The birthday gifts from my boyfriend’s sister I found in my mailbox. I absolutely love the card!
The letter from Monika. Her handmade envelopes always brighten up my day! And I also have a really soft spot for Sentimental Circus :)
Birthday card(s) from Julie! I love the Red Queen and Alice Card! I should get a big frame and put all my favourite cards in it. Yes, this is a future project now.
And lastly, here is the letter I wrote with my Lamy pen.
Joker Kitty still cracks me up.
